Going Past Lessons Learned  (Holocaust Thoughts)

Its hard to believe that it wasn't that long ago
when the Jews experienced the pain and suffering
of the Holocaust in Germany in 1933-1945 Germany;
yet we are reminded even today when we become aware
that many of the survivors of the Holocaust are
still alive today and many are still suffering
the effects.   I was recently reading a Jewish
magazine and was impressed by Rabbi Yechiel
Eckstein's writing on this subject, where he wrote
"Beyond the Lesson"..."Most certainly, it is
critical to remember the Holocaust and learn its
lessons." the Rabbi said.  "Yet sadly, we have only
been memiorializing those people who perished while
ignoring the plight of the hundreds of thousands of
Holocaust survivors who today are living in
wretched poverty."  "WE must equally focus on
helping the remaining Holocaust survivors achieve
a measure of dignity in their twilight years."...
from Shoresh, the Root, Vol 22-No. 6, June 2016,
International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
This is not only about lessons learned, it is about
acknowledging and helping those still alive today.
